A new college comprehensive chemical experiment, preparation of TiO2 photocatalyst sensitized by copper (Ⅱ) porphyrin, was developed. The experiment is from the achievements of scientific research. It includes the synthesis of copper (Ⅱ) tetraphenyl porphyrin, the preparation of TiO2 photocatalyst sensitized by copper (Ⅱ) tetraphenyl porphyrin, and photodegradation of organic contaminant in water. Through the experimental process, students' chemical knowledge will be expanded, and chemical experiment skill will be improved. Furthermore, students' interest in scientific research can be stimulated and cultivated.

Key words: Copper (Ⅱ) porphyrin, Titanium dioxide, Photocatalyst, Photodegradation, Comprehensive chemical experiment
